I barely slept last night. I kept waking up to check and see if school had been delayed or cancelled and like a bunch of SUPERSTARS, the school district waited until 6am to make the call. By 6am, I was just up and unable to go back to sleep.
Plus, and this is going to sound really stupid - but last night I beat one of my behavioral dragons that made me not want to do Whole 30. I love to watch Downton Abbey and have a glass of wine (or 2) and some snacks. I love it so, so much. It's my happy time. And I sort of wondered if I could even enjoy watching it without the wine and snacks, knowing they were off limits. The answer is yes! It was fun and I didn't miss the wine at all. I had a snack and it was healthy and everything was all good. I can't believe I even worried about it now!
So I spent the day running around with the kids and hit Costco to stock up on compliant food (as the weather is supposed to continue to suck well into the week). Here's what I got:
- big bag of brussell sprouts
- big bag of asparagus
- huge bag of spinach
- organic drumsticks
- organic ground beef
- random other stuff for kids' lunches and snacks
Then I went home and made a huge creamy, cheesy spinach and artichoke dip for some friends that I would have gladly smashed my whole face into, but I couldn't even taste it to see if the seasoning was right. But my friends loved it and it made them happy, so it's all good.
Overall, I had a ton of energy and almost no appetite today. Here's what I ate:
Coffee: 2 cups with coconut cream
Breakfast: A slice of eggy enchilada bake with fresh salsa and half an avocado on top
Lunch: A piece of leftover cracking chicken
Snack: Another piece of leftover crackling chicken
Dinner: A big salad with chopped up crackling chicken, home-made ranch dressing, and diced avocado
Snack: 5 sulfate-free dried apricots
So today food was no problem at all, mostly because I wasn't that hungry and whenever I was, there was crackling chicken for me to eat. I like it just a little bit. So here's today's gif, it's Cap'n Kirk being smooth, because today was so smooth:
